  1. David Stern: An anchor of legacy

    Mar 22, 2012, 11:10 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    This isn’t the David Stern we thought we knew. Or maybe it’s not the David Stern he wanted to be. Or maybe it’s not the David Stern who actually is David Stern. The National Basketball Association has been under the care of Stern since 1984,with Stern having worked with the league in some capacity since…

  2. Clippers crossroads: Is Vinny Del Negro’s job in danger?

    Mar 22, 2012, 10:23 AM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    The Clippers are regressing. They have gone 7-11 since Chauncey Billups went down with his Achilles injury and they have looked a mess, including a blowout loss to the Thunder Wednesday. The Clippers have not played good defense all season but early on their offense was able to overwhelm teams — Chris Paul in the…

  3. Samuel L. Jackson to do intros at Clippers, Hornets Thursday

    What is it about New Orleans that they get all the best celebrity introductions? A few weeks ago it was Will Ferrell. Now on Thursday night when Chris Paul and the Clippers come to New Orleans it will be Samuel L. Jackson, reports the Times-Picayune. The Oscar-nominated actor, in town to shoot Quentin Tarantino’s “Django…

  4. Wednesday And-1 links: Who are the NBA’s best floppers?

    Mar 21, 2012, 11:10 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Who are the NBA’s best floppers? These guys. But Chris Paul is really…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Suns are rising, Spurs climb too.

    Mar 19, 2012, 2:27 PM EST

    John Lucas III, Carlos Boozer

    Trade deadline moves aren’t changing the top of the rankings much, but we will see Portland and some other teams fall in the coming weeks. And we don’t know what the Nets are thinking either, so don’t ask. 1. Bulls (37-10, last week ranked number 1). They beat the Heat without Derrick Rose in the…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bosh looks good in Heat victory

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:10 AM EST

    LeBron James, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while thinking a new study proves your children are brilliant…. Heat 91, Magic 81: Everybody talks about the big man the Heat could use. We often underestimate Chris Bosh — he had 23 points on 13 shots. Dwyane Wade owned the fourth quarter with 14 of his 31 coming then, when the…

  7. Video: Another day, another monster slam from Blake Griffin

    Mar 18, 2012, 12:02 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to end his career mentioned with Vince Carter, Shawn Kemp and the other great in-game dunkers of the NBA at his peak. Because he does things like this every game. It helps to have Chris Paul feeding you and all, but this guy is a monster. Whether he finishes his career…

  8. LeBron says we shouldn’t compare his free agent decision to Dwight Howard’s

    Mar 16, 2012, 10:13 PM EST

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard and Miami Heat forward LeBron James talk during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Orlando

    After a great deal of deliberation, Dwight Howard decided to opt-in for the additional year on his contract, staying in Orlando for at least one more season. It obviously was a difficult decision, evidenced by the fact that Howard changed his mind seemingly a thousand times before signing the necessary paperwork to stay with Magic.…

  9. Who has the best hesitation move in the Association?

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:01 PM EST

    Derrick Rose LeBron James

    Fun video from the fine folks at NBA.com. I tend to agree it is Chris Paul or Derrick Rose, but they both use them so differently. With CP3 it’s like in that split second he soaks everything in then makes the best play for the team. Rose just uses it to blow by you before…

  10. Clippers hold hour-long, closed-door meeting after ugly loss

    Mar 16, 2012, 6:35 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin

    The Clippers blew a 12-point fourth quarter lead at home to a Phoenix Suns team playing without Steve Nash or Grant Hill. That is pretty much the textbook definition of an ugly loss. The Clippers have had a number of losses lately, most accompanied by some poor end-of-game execution. Take the ball out Chris Paul’s…

  11. Don’t expect the Hornets to buy out Chris Kaman

    Mar 16, 2012, 1:20 PM EST

    Chris Kaman, Nene

    The usual pattern goes like this: Team tries hard to trade overpriced veteran player, then if they find no takes they buy him out after the trade deadline. Then he signs elsewhere for the minimum (or fades into the sunset) That’s not going to be the pattern with Chris Kaman of the Hornets. New Orleans…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Clippers collapse leads to a lot of talk

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EST

    Caron Butler

    What you missed while watching your NCAA bracket go up in flames…. Suns 91, Clippers 87: Phoenix was on the second night of a back-to-back-to-back so coach Alvin Gentry decided to rest Grant Hill and Steve Nash — and the Suns still rallied from 12 back in the fourth quarter to win. The Suns have…

  13. Surveying trade deadline landscape: League’s second tier got better

    Mar 16, 2012, 12:56 AM EST

    Nick Young

    As you survey the NBA landscape in the aftermath of the storm that is always the NBA trade deadline, and a couple things leap out: First, the title contenders did not change — and they all stood pat. In the East, the path to the finals goes through Miami and Chicago and nobody really moved…

  14. Video: Pau Gasol, happy to still be with the Lakers

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:25 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol drives between Boston Celtics Brandon Bass and Celtics Jermaine O'Neal in the first half of their NBA basketball game at TD Garden in Boston

    It was a rough first half of the season for Pau Gasol. Ever since training camp, when he was included in the trade that would have sent him out of town in exchange for Chris Paul, except that it was vetoed … well, it was never really agreed to by the Hornets’ ownership, so technically…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls beat Heat even without that Rose guy

    Mar 15, 2012, 9:14 AM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is guarded by Chicago Bulls' John Lucas and Luol Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while waiting for Dwight Howard to change his mind again…. Bulls 106, Heat 102: This just shows the different mentalities of these two teams. No Derrick Rose, no Richard Hamilton and yet the Bulls just brought it with fantastic energy. They defended, guys like John Lucas III (24 points) and Jimmy Butler…

  17. Tuesday And-1 links: Rondo’s pregame meal? Sushi.

    Mar 13, 2012, 11:20 AM EST

    Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo celebrates during their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Los Angeles

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Rajon Rondo’s pregame meal? Sushi, of course. (I was in the locker room last night and can confirm this.) What would life be like if…

  18. Danny Ainge: “Rondo’s not being traded”

    Mar 13, 2012, 8:37 AM EST

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Danny Ainge was unequivocal as you can be in speaking with A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com before the Celtics took on the Clippers Monday night. “Rondo’s not being traded,” Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, told CSNNE.com prior to the Celtics facing the Los Angeles Clippers. “I don’t know how many times I have…

  19. Celtics suck the fun out of Clippers style, earn the win

    Mar 13, 2012, 2:54 AM EST

    Boston Celtics Avery Bradley slam dunks over the Los Angeles Clippers during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Teams have to learn how to win at the NBA level. How to play to their strengths, how to recognize the mismatch and exploit it, how to go to the counter when the first option is taken away. Boston knows how to do that — their depleted roster and aging bodies may not let them…

  20. Reports: Portland shopping Crawford to Clippers, Bobcats

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:56 PM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    Jamal Crawford and his up-tempo, shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later style has not meshed with the grind it out ways of Nate McMillan in Portland. It hasn’t been fun for him. What could possibly be worse. Charlotte. On the other hand, he could land with everyone’s new favorite team the Clippers. There are a few different reports out there.…

  21. Report: Howard likes Clippers, Heat. Please make this stop.

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

  22. Clippers not likely to get Ray Allen, won’t risk long term for short

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:48 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    It’s pretty easy to picture the Clippers as a serious threat to the Thunder in the West if they added Ray Allen — the Celtics sharp shooter who takes on the Clippers Monday night. The Clippers have struggled with production from the two guard spot since Chauncey Billups went down with an Achilles tendon injury.…

  23. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  25. Report: Chris Paul has nasal fracture, will wear mask just like you know who

    Mar 11, 2012, 10:21 PM EST

    cpmas

    It’s apparently a fad now. From the Los Angeles Times: Chris Paul warmed up for Sunday’s game against Golden State with a very familiar accessory. A Kobe mask. Paul was hit in the face during the first quarter of Friday’s game against San Antonio. A Clippers spokesman said that Paul received an X-ray on Saturday and it…
